Forecasts

Hisnameis Mrdevitt (11/4), Western Cowboy (4/1), Pike County (4/1), Buddy Rich (11/2), Bonarc (8/1), Hearts Are Trumps (9/1), Too Bright (10/1), Family Business (14/1), Clonbury Bridge (14/1), Patsy's Honour (16/1), Tudor City (18/1), Goulane Chosen (22/1), Malbas (25/1), Astrophysicist (33/1)

Verdict

WESTERN COWBOY beat a now useful hurdler in a Limerick maiden a year ago and may still have a bigger performance in the locker given his low-mileage profile, so he gets the tentative vote to make a winning return in an open handicap. Hisnameis Mrdevitt and Malbas are a couple of potential threats.

  1. WESTERN COWBOY (IRE)
  2. HISNAMEIS MRDEVITT (IRE)
  3. MALBAS
